I can guarantee the beeping is from the airbag system. Maybe replace airbag control module

the system will beep when the bulb doesn't function in the cluster. so if it works sometimes, i would say the bulb is loose.

the next time it beeps, or flashes, count the number of times it beeps or flashes. it should be a two digit code. IE, flashes 2 times, short pause, then 7 times, long pause, then repeats would be a 2-7 code. same with the beeping.
